New ‘Why Him?’ Trailer Pits James Franco Against Bryan Cranston
20th Century Fox has released a new red-band trailer for Why Him?, the upcoming R-rated comedy starring James Franco, Bryan Cranston.
Directed by John Hamburg from a screenplay he co-wrote with Ian Helfer, the movie follows a Silicon Valley “zillionaire” who has “literally no filter,” who tries to win over the stuffed shirt father of his girlfriend.
Keegan-Michael Key, Adam Devine, Casey Wilson, and Andrew Rannells co-star. Why Him? is in theaters December 23rd. Check out the new red-band trailer below.
Still think it looks stupid, but I can’t lie…kinda liked this trailer.
Over the holidays, Ned (Bryan Cranston), an overprotective but loving dad and his family visit his daughter at Stanford, where he meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend, Laird (James Franco). The straight-laced Ned thinks Laird, who has absolutely no filter, is a wildly inappropriate match for his daughter. The one-sided rivalry-and Ned’s panic level-escalate when he finds himself increasingly out of step in the glamorous high-tech hub, and learns that Laird is about to pop the question.
